This issue could not be more important.  There are more than one million orphans in Ghana, and too many of them are languishing in unlicensed, inadequate orphanages.  These children are all too often subjected to violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect.  They are not even guaranteed the most basic necessities—things like food, water, clothing, education and health care.  In these conditions, they are robbed of the chance to grow, learn, and thrive.
